Adding Box.net to a password protected page

  1. Is it possible to add the Box.net widget to a specific page on my blog? I want to provide some tools for download purposes that will be password protected. I don't want to have them available to people unless they are granted the password. I thought possibly adding the embed code to a page post would be the ideal solution. I quickly found out that I cannot do that. I'm new to all of this, but have been figuring things out quite quickly. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thank you! ~Lisa

  2. Hi there,

    the box.net widget is a widget which by the meaning of it is placed in the sidebar.

    Whilst I'm not familiar with box.net at all, is it not possible to just post a link to your box.net account on the protected page?

  3. Here's the FAQs entry http://faq.wordpress.com/2007/04/23/using-the-boxnet-widget/
    It's my understanding that widgets cannot be "installed" in posts or pages, only in sidebars, and I'll rely on staff to correct me if I'm wrong.

    If I am correct then what carocat suggests "just post a link to your box.net account on the protected page" will be the only option that I can see.
